Came across that one too. It looks like it has sattle tanks (for example weel visible with C11(like the type VII)). I don't see it in the photo here and if you ask me the deck (towards the bow is higher). I have to say It does come close.

Ok.......First of all without the help of Rockpile I would have never tried again .... :D I had "forgotten" that the Japanese navy had subs before WWI.....shame on me. Thought about all others nations (Russia, UK, USA, France...etc) but not the great Empire of Japan !

what about a VK type submarine No 13 . Coastal sub. about 300 tons, 2 torp tubes , 26 men , 11/8 knts ?

Steve ..... let us know !!! :D

cheers

Hi Antoine! You are correct! Rest easy everyone, I know that was a hard one.

VK type submarine No 13 . Coastal sub. about 300 tons, 2 torp tubes , 26 men , 11/8 knts.

This submarine was a British Vickers design, for the Japanese Imperial Navy. I do not know if it was built in Britain or in Japan under license. Remember the Japanese battle cruiser 'Kongo'? It was also built around that same time from 'Vickers'. Kongo was the last major warship built for Japan from overseas. The other three 'Kongo's were built in Japan. Then on Japan would build her own superb warships. Their Japanese submarines evolved and branched out with their own remarkable designs like ones of other Navies, Britain, Russia, Sweden, Netherlands. All had purchased, or were permitted to build their own versions under licence of one or more 'Holland' boats initially to begin each their own embryonic submarine service.

Bravo!

nice try Steve...but not this one. :laugh:
Be informed that I modified a little bit the picture in the bow area to hide the number of the boat.It didnt affect the shape of the boat but only the color of the hull in this area.

Antoine

IT IS THE E-34

Hello Antoine,

Hi Antione,

The image is of the 'Neretva', of the Sutjestka class (2 boats), of the former Yugoslavian Navy. Sutjestka was the first submarine built in a Yugoslav yard. Commissioned 1960.

945 Tons Submerged
Length 197 ft.
6-21 in tubes
14 surface speed, 9 submerged
